You can help put a smile on the faces of sick children this Christmas by donating toys and unwanted Christmas gifts to our appeal.
The Bexley Times has teamed up with chYps, a charity providing hospice at home care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in Bexley and Kent.
To spread some festive cheer we are looking for readers to drop off new toys or unwanted gifts at a number of stores across the borough before and after Christmas.
A significant part of chYps’ role is to support children who will likely die before adulthood.
Director of fundraising, Rachel Holweger, said: “What we really need is more donations, and hopefully they will come as a result of this amazing coverage.”
You can drop your festive treats in at Erith Flooring Ltd, Mill Road, Erith; Kitchen Concepts, Blackfen Road, Sidcup; Paynes Menswear, Station Road, Sidcup, or We Love Cakes, Bexley High Street.
Alternatively, you can donate to chYps, which must raise £1.47million each year to maintain its level of support, at chyps.org.
